The Planning Shop finds fame at Book Expo America 2004
That's right, folks. The Planning Shop was living it up at Book Expo America in Chicago last June, unveiling our 2 newest books: Six-Week Start-Up and What Business Should I Start? While attending a breakfast Q&A session with Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, author of America (the book): A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction, I was selected from the audience to ask Mr. Stewart a question. The majority of the questions asked by other audience members revolved around the upcoming presidential election and politics in general, however; I decided to ask a question about a topic a bit nearer and dearer to my heart: hockey! Little did I know, the event was broadcast on Book TV, a weekend feature of the ever-popular CSPAN 2. So, for all 12 of you who actually watch Book TV (including Rhonda!), that's why you saw me blushing on national television at a Jon Stewart breakfast event. What did I learn from this experience? Jon Stewart isn't much of a hockey fan. Although, he did correctly predict the winner of the 2004 Stanley Cup--the Tampa Bay Lightning--winning me the hefty sum of $5.00.
